Ketchikan gets a lot of rain - 300 days per year, but it's a great little tourist town. There are many nice shops and great ocean views.

Totem pole park was really neat and full of history!

I love this place. It's a safe place to raise your children.

The prices of groceries is pretty high. Even though the cost of living is high, it's awesome to live here.
